The Government of Jordan is committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. It submitted its first Voluntary National Review (VNR) to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) in 2017 and is preparing to submit its second VNR in 2022. The 2017 VNR included an ambitious roadmap for Jordan including prioritizing and mapping of SDG goals, targets and indicators, of mainstreaming SDGs into national and sub-national development strategies, plans and budgets, strengthening monitoring and evaluation and data availability. While the Government has made commendable progress in many areas despite the many challenges Jordan is facing, much remains to be done.

The process of preparing the 2022 VNR therefore provides an important opportunity to take stock, to review ambitions for 2030 in the context of the impact of COVID-19 and other shocks and to set out a revised plan of action to accelerate progress towards the SDGs. The process provides entry points to make stronger linkages between various reform efforts and strategy development processes including those being led by the Government Indicative Executive Program 2021-2024, and the Reform Secretariat at the Ministry of Planning on the green recovery strategy and to ensure that the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs are at the core of these efforts.

The VNR is also an opportunity to raise awareness on the 2030 Agenda and its ambition of an interconnected development agenda and leaving no one behind engaging the whole of government, civil society and development partners.
